Join us for Northampton Community College's Annual Humanities Lecture. This interactive lecture will include a Q & A session moderated by Raja Bhattacharya, Director of the NCC Follett Family Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
We currently find ourselves in the grip of three simultaneous crises: a global health pandemic, an economic collapse and a social justice reckoning. These scenarios do not just ask for a response, they demand it.
As we work to reboot our economy, entrepreneurs are poised to reimagine how we incorporate inclusive social and cultural practices into the way we do business with each other for the greater social good, and not just for the pursuit of profits.
What does inclusion really mean? Is the American Dream more accessible than you think? How do we put purpose into practice? Can entrepreneurship serve as a pathway to financial freedom?
